Crawlspace – Dark Horror You’ve Been Waiting For

CrawlspaceCrawlspace, the purest dark horror novel I’ve written since Storberry, was released a little less than a month ago. Because of its tension and ferocity, Crawlspace is my favorite creation to date.

I am honored that the initial Amazon reviews are so positive for Crawlspace. Here are snippets from the most recent reviews:


“Just as Jack Ketchum, Richard Laymon, and the Splatterpunks did a generation ago, Dan Padavona’s CRAWLSPACE represents a seismic shift in the horror genre. An instant — and important — classic.” – Brian Keene

“The tension and claustrophobia made my chest feel tight and my hands shake. Part of me wanted to put it down but I knew I couldn’t. It’s hard for me to get scared now adays but Dan seems to have found the secret.”

“A Horror Homerun! This is, without a doubt, Dan’s best work to date.”

“I’ve read most of Padavona’s work, and this is easily his best.”

“It kept me on edge not knowing…this book will not let you down.”

“This particular book was rooted in details of reality that make a story truly come to life. An author like Stephen King does this like a master, and Dan is developing this skill with extreme adeptness.”

“Crawlspace seduces you and then slams the door and locks it, leaving you stuck flipping the pages. It doesn’t care that you have to work in the morning. A claustrophobic tromp through the darkest of recesses.”


I wrote Crawlspace for readers who love dark horror, and fans who grew up loving Grindhouse movies and then graduated to Richard Laymon and Jack Ketchum novels, because these are the genres and authors which most influence me.

Are you ready to enter the crawlspace? I’ll warn you – it’s going to be dark up there.

Tell me what you thought of my latest novel, and please leave a review on Amazon.
